Looking for venue for spectacular escape stunt

Post by SANTINI » Tue Nov 28, 2006 5:59 am


My name is Steve Santini and I hail from Canada.

I perform professionally as, "Santini: The Dark Master of Escape". In this capacity I present the most hardcore, extreme, and life/limb risking escape artist shows and stunts on the planet.

This past New Year's Eve I performed a daring escape as part of the nationally broadcast "Canada's New Years Eve Bash" live from Nathan Phillips Square in downtown Toronto.

In front of 35,000 live audience member I was manacled and then locked in a steel vault.

Massive propane flamethrowers were then turned on the vault heating it up to the temperature of a blast furnace.

I had to escape before running out of air of being cooked alive.

Happily, I made it.

Footage of this particular escape, called "The Cremation Chamber" can be viewed on my website at www.thedarkmaster.com

This year I was offically named, "The World's Most Extreme Escape Artist" by the legendary Ripley's Believe it or Not! and a full page interview/feature on my work can be found in the new internationally distributed Ripley's book, "Expect the Unexpected!"

For many years I have been interested in performing a massive and grand media generating escape feat at Burning Man.

I have always felt that this venue is perfect for my extreme skills, particularly because of my joining the elements of fire with many of my performances.

So, I thought I would post here and see if there would be any interest from the principal organizers or perhaps a sponsor in having me come to Burning Man and present a large and thrilling spectacle.

Perhaps an escape from the belly of the Burning Man himself while he burns!

If anyone is interested in such an event, I can be reached at bookings@thedarkmaster.com

Thank you and I look forward to hearing from some of you soon.

Cheers, Steve Santini www.thedarkmaster.com
